What has been new in my world. Hm.
Cameron had lots of emotions last week. Like, a lot. He got really drunk at the club on Friday and just disappeared at one moment – hello flashback to Blake. I ended up finding him dancing next to Alvaro lol. He got really upset after and cried pretty much the entire way home which was a lot..
He also just has very strong opinions about a lot of things around the house, which is cool and stuff but like.. I want to make decisions about MY house. So that’s frustrating. He also makes comments about my finances which is frustrating and makes me second guess myself. I mean, I know he is flustered with the job search but he needs to calm the fuck down.. for both our sakes.
Work has been pretty chill. Something lawsuit, something something.
I’m excited for this weekend! Audra’s on Friday/Saturday, Tristan’s on Sunday, and Cam’s on Monday. Woot!
Lots has happened, kind of.
I had chatted with Tyler for a hot second. He’s doing well, perhaps moving to Michigan or Colorado. He is seeing someone from Michigan which is funny. Funny in that, it’s dumb because he didn’t want to continue things with me because of distance but both of the past two guys have been far. Like, if you didn’t love me just say that. K?
It doesn’t matter anyways because I have the most amazing boyfriend. He’s so sweet and supportive. He’s still emotional a lot, but we work through it. He’s sexy and nerdy, I really lucked out. He brought up 3somes last weekend because he’s been more intrigued by them lately. I’m not sure what to make of it, I’m happy but nervous. I don’t want to go down the same road I’ve been down but exploring new things with him is exciting.
Next weekend is Memorial Day and I can’t believe it. I think I’m going to try to go to see Audra, and then to a party with Tristan, and then spending time with Cameron’s family. It should be relaxing and fun.
I did so much this weekend with Cameron. We were going to go see Shangela on Friday but then we got caught up in Dear White People which I’m not mad about. Sam mentioned he would come up but not if we went to Necto, but then flaked anyways.
Saturday we did so many things! We cut the lawn, raked it, ripped up some plants, bought a fireplace and wood, and then had a fire with Jake & Anna. It was nice 🙂
Today I didn’t do too much. I went to an estate sale with Cameron which was nice, but we didn’t get anything.
The school year is over. Thank goodness. Our office has also moved locations and I’m quite partial to the new one – we are close to Bdubs, Starbucks, all that jazz. 🙂
My first mortgage payment was due on the first which was weird. I have a mortgage. All my bills are paid but I’m broke. I can’t wait until I no longer owe Robert that money, then I can start making money moves again. :p I mean, I’m still putting money in my savings, and some into an IRA. I’m ahead of the game, I think.
Cameron will be moving in soon which is really nice and will be helpful in terms of rent. Johnny was supposed to move in but backed out.. surprise. I asked Grayson but I don’t think he wants to live in Michigan.
Life is strange, I can’t believe I’m where I’m at.
Things have been going so quickly. So, so quickly. I moved the majority of my stuff into the house this weekend with Cameron. We painted and put mud on the walls on Saturday, and then he left. Sunday I had a retreat with my new group of students and that went pretty well. It sucked having to work on the weekend, but that’s okay. I took Monday afternoon off / flexed from Sunday and finished painting the bedroom because I didn’t sleep well at all Sunday night.
Speaking of Sunday night, Ellie kept me up all night because she kept hearing things. At 3:30 a.m. there was a cat or something making some awful noise outside. Just lots of creepy things which helped me find motivation to finish my room on Monday.
Yesterday (Tuesday) I stayed home because my body hurt so much. Still pretty achey this morning, but I’m at work. I needed to finish a few things. I might go see a movie tonight.
Over the past week we have done quite a bit of work at the house.
Monday and Tuesday I started painting the living room. Wednesday I bought new drywall. Thursday my dad and Josh put in the drywall in the main room. Friday we put it in the other room. Saturday I sanded the floors with Cameron and then we stained them. Sunday we put polyurethane on it. Today I will put the second coat on it. Woo.
Work has finally started to settle down (I hope). We have certified results, which is stellar.
Money is tight, but I feel like it probably will be until July.
I spent this past weekend at the house tearing up carpet, nails, staples, and paneling. Tomorrow and Friday my dad and sister’s boyfriend will be taking out the walls and putting in new drywall. There was wallpaper in it, and they smoked so it was kind of gross old stuff anyhow. In a few weeks, or maybe May, I will get a dumpster.
The election stuff is still not over, unfortunately. Hopefully soon. I’m over them all. I cannot wait until the end of the semester.
Today is the day! I close on my house. I’m excited, nervous, but mainly happy. I went over there again yesterday with Sam to make sure furniture and stuff was out. It all was except the couch which I bet is hard to get out. lol. The furnace was also working which is exciting.
Election stuff is wrapping up, which I’m excited about. I feel like everything this year is going to be closely monitored because it’s a bunch of white kids running it. By closely monitored, I mean the students not the administration. Which is good, hold them accountable.
Over the past few days I’ve worked way more than I wanted to. I’m trying to find times where I can flex, but don’t see it in my foreseeable future. Maybe Friday. Maybe.
This week has been interesting. A corgi on campus is being written in for presidential candidate and is receiving far too many. Buzzfeed emailed us today about it which is entertaining but unfortunate for the students that are putting in lots of work to win.
Cam and I have been doing well. I’m a bit enamored I think. He’s just so stellar.
I close on my house on Tuesday which is super exciting!
I was so busy last week that I got sick, no joke. I was in Houston from Sunday through Wednesday for a conference. I met some cool folks – Coleman, Clark, Jeremy. It was neat and the weather was warm. The conference was okay, very gay friendly but beyond that I’m not sure how I felt about it. The sessions were okay, but nothing super great.
I got back Wednesday, had to go pick up Ellie after work on Thursday, and then felt like complete crap. I took Friday off because I was ill – I laid in bed most of the day. Then Cameron came over and we just hung out. Saturday we went bowling with Anna, then to see Love, Simon with Zach and Kris, and then they came over and we played Dungeons and Dragons, made dinner, and then watched Girls Night. It was a good day, but long since I wasn’t feeling 100.
This week is the election which should be interesting. I’m very curious to see who wins.
